Angry Which door for my 94 ST?

I have searched, but not found what I need. I have a crunched drivers door on my 94 soft top. I have talked to RoversDownSouth and Rovers North. Neither have the door in stock. Both have Series III and 95/97 ST doors. George explained that the 95/97 door will not work because of the travel limiter and I talked to ECR about using the Series door. Again the limiter (aka the rod thingy) is the problem. Also some holes would also have to be drilled. SO, has anyone actually used either door on a 94 ST? If so, what EXACTLY had to be done to make it work. Thanks in advance.

David

That thread did not come up during my mutiple searches. Thanks. Unfortunately, neither option sounds very good. I'm waiting for a quote from the body shop. It will be painful.

How crunched? Can't you just replace the door skin?

Not that crunched. Not sure whats involved with changing the skin/price/where to get, etc. Doubt if anyone around here knows how either. Had several body shops refuse to work on it because it wasn't steel. Talked with a guy at DAP, am going with a Series door. Said I will need to drill holes for the speaker wire, the interior panel and the lock tumbler (I plan on getting the body shop to do that one). The door is $175 vs $500 for the body shop to fix the old one.

I have a willow green 94 door that I plan to convert to use on a 97. I'll trade you for a 97 door if you would like.

I thought the SIII doors had the same hole for the tumble as the 1994 D90?

Early series doors do not, but the later ones do. I am sure a quick comparison of the two and a little welding or drilling/cutting before paint would get you a match that is more than close enough to be unnoticable.

The series doors I bought do NOT hade the hole for the tumbler. The door limiter strap issue is of no concern really.. for me...

good luck!
